NEW signing Bradley Garmston is looking forward to the challenge of helping Colchester United to pull clear of the League One relegation zone.

Garmston has today signed on loan for the U’s, from Premier League club West Brom, initially on a one-month loan deal.

The young left-back, who is a regular in the Baggies’ under-21 development side, has yet to make a first team appearance for the Midlands club.

But he is very highly regarded by West Brom, and by U’s boss Joe Dunne, who was delighted to secure the defender ahead of this weekend’s tough trip to Sheffield United.

“This move has come as a bit of a surprise to me,” revealed Garmston this morning.

“But it is fantastic that the gaffer (Dunne) has shown some faith in me. I know that he has come down to watch some of my games.

“It’s brilliant that he has shown his belief in me.”

Chorley-born Garmston, who turned 19 last month, is renowned for his pace, which is not surprising when considered that his mother, Sonia Lannaman, won Commonwealth Games gold as a sprinter.

Garmston himself was second at the England Schools National Athletics Championships, over 200 metres, in his age group two years ago.

His mother won a bronze medal at the Moscow Olympics in 1980, as part of the 4x100m relay team, two years after winning gold in the individual 100m at the Commonwealth Games.

Ipswich Town trio Andre Dozzell, Flynn Downes and Trevoh Chalobah could have the chance to impress the club’s new management when England’s Under-20s take on Germany in Colchester tonight (7pm ko).
